Except few cathedrals could not appreciate this place much. This is spread across a large area and you will end up spending atleast 2-3 hours roaming around. However nothing is so exceptional about this place. Natural beauty in this country is far more appealing. My...More

First, this tour can be done in less than a day with the following itinerary: a Fort Santiago tour (better if you do the Carlos Celdran one) which will end at Casa Manila which is about a km away. Afterwards, you can pop in across...More

The old buildings are beautiful and it’s a very nice place to take a walk. Other than that there’s a lot of trash in the streets and it’s full of people asking you to buy stuff all the time. Don’t expect a romantic/perfect old part...More

Hi, Intramuros would be a fairly easy walk from the cruise ship docks. It might take about 30 minutes. The easiest route might be to walk to the main cathedral and fort area. They are on the edge of the Intramuros.
